Now that I'm in the 13 second bracket, I need to decide on what kinda parts I'm gonna run... How does this sound?

Mac shorty headers with off-road H or X pipe with Flows (I would rather run an H but a friend is gonna sell me his X for 150, bbk)
4 18x9 2000 Cobra R rims with Nitto 555 DRs
9mm plug wires (blue)
twin 70 mm throttle body (If possible)
Mac Cold Air Induction
Pro 5.0 shifter
Steeda Underdrive pulleys
MSD Digital 6
Possibly a 50 shot of n2o for insurance purposes.
Eventually an ATI or Vortech blower.
Plus, gotta have a racin Tach!!! Them things are cool.

After my 75000 mile warranty period is over, I'm gonna drop a 5.0 in and see how good that does. While I'm riceing with the 5.0, I'll take a look at how the 4.6 SOHC actually works. hehehe. I hope by then I'll be a master engineer and certified to work at SVT.

Any advice would be desirable and appreciated, thanks. :smile:

Mac doesn't make shorties for the 4.6s, they do make long tubes though. JBA and FRPP do make shorties for your car.

The Nitto DRs for the 18s would probably slow your car down. They are almost 29 inches tall.

You do not need plug wires for your car, you have a coil-on-plug system that doesn't use plug wires like you're thinking.

Don't bother, even with a charger you probably won't see any benefit from a larger TB.

I know I am going against the grain here, but unless you want to clean up the underhood looks, don't bother. The gains are negligable IMO.

Good choice, you won't go wrong with an upgraded shifter.

Nice piece, but not much to be gained here either. Your car already has underdrive alternator and water pump pullies.

If you go power adder, you might get something out of this, but most don't do this.

Not a bad choice, a 50 shot should be very safe.

For what you are planning on spending above on bolt-ons you could almost buy a blower.

Now that's just weird.

Amen on Chalmers' statement. Go with the shifter first before you blow the tranny trying to find gears @ high RPM. The competition will hate you for it! :grin:
